Logue gets GOP ‘young gun’ tag

FAIRFIELD — State Assemblyman Dan Logue says he heard about his House Republican designation as a “young gun” during a Monday phone call with Rep. Kevin McCarthy, House majority whip for the GOP.

The designation, which will boost financial backing for Logue’s challenge to Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, follows results of the June 3 election, Logue said.

“They saw me break even with Garamendi on Election Day,” said Logue, R-Loma Rica. “That was part of it.”

Incumbent Garamendi won 54 percent of the overall vote to Logue’s nearly 46 percent. The two face each other in the Nov. 4 election to represent the 3rd Congressional District that includes Fairfield, Suisun City and Vacaville.

A representative for Garamendi said the congressman would not comment on Logue’s “young gun” designation by the GOP.

Garamendi said on Election Day that he was pleased by the results and that voter support reflects their understanding of his work as the 3rd District congressman.

“People realize I have worked to represent this district, from the Air Force base to agricultural fields to university towns,” the congressman said. “People know they can count on me.”

Logue said Texas Gov. Rick Perry would appear Tuesday as a guest of honor at a Woodland event for Logue’s congressional campaign.  Logue said California is the most overregulated state for business in the country.

“It’s almost to the point where if you make a profit you’re going to be arrested,” he said.

Overregulation and high energy costs are driving businesses, including firms in Silicon Valley, out of California, said the state assemblyman.

“Silicon Valley is moving to Texas from California,” Logue said.

Perry told Breitbart News this week that he is proud of low taxes and limited regulations in Texas but that he’s not rooting for California to fail.

“We need California to be the Golden Bear again,” the governor said.

    Being a "Young Gun" will actually hurt Logue in this district. He will have to come up with some new ideas even more so now.

    Actually, the designation won't hurt him at all. There is no one that intended to vote for him that won't now because of it. The additional funding will help get more conservatives to the polls. The key with this race is how little he loses by. If it's less than a 10 point spread, that will indicate enough change nationally for democrats to take the Senate. If that happens, Garamendi is meaningless. Logue is running on the right message. Keep your doctor. Change your Congressman.

    The more Logue is viewed as a threat, the more opposition he will attract. In this district.

    A threat, how?

    Now is being endorsed by his own party a threat? He's not trying to get the votes of democrats. He's trying to rally his own party to vote and gain the votes of independents. He has the right message to do that.

    He can't win in this district without being so moderate he attracts Democratic votes. He can lose and still "win" if he does better than expected with a new message. I've said I would vote for either candidate if he would approach immigration reform by starting with amending the Constitution to eliminate the "birthright citizenship" provision. I meant that. I'm a Democrat. Take it from there.

    rlw, I can't say I believe you would compromise the differences in the other issues. Repealing Obamacare for one.

    Mr.P: You're right about that. It shows you how unworried I am that Logue win beat Garamendi and how unworried I am that electing Logue because he makes a positive move on immigration reform would threaten ObamaCare.

    Republicans complain because Garamendi lives a couple of miles out side of our district. Logue lives in Chico. Maybe they can explain how this is better for us? Also, why did he drop out of his last race? Health issues? Or?
